Finally the news is out, the rumours turned out to be true, there will be a World of warcraft expansion called the Burning Crusade. Read all about it on Gamespot and the Blizzard site. Most interesting things are the max level will be raised to 70 and the Horde will get a new race, the blood elves. Those newbie grounds will be very crowded once this expansion will come out :). Definately am looking forward to this one, but it’ll probably be a while before it’s released.

Ever since the early I’ve been playing Sid Meier’s excellent Civilization series. Civ 3 didnt really do it for me, but the now released Civilization 4 really plays even better than Civ2 :). Games take quite a while so I’ve only been playing 2 games at the lower difficulty levels, but it’s been a lot of fun. Sid himself appeared on the Kojo Namdi show of WAMU 88.5 (American University Radio) . The link has an hour long program where Sid talks about the new game and recent trends in the gaming industry. Also read the excellent review at gamespot.
Also check out the CivFanatics website and forum for great strategy tips and chitchat on civilization.
This is one of the most moving Grateful Dead songs, they started playing this by the end of ’93 till ’95. Jerry’s voice make it so chilling, hard to explain. Why am I writing this now ? Well I started listening to some Dead songs again, and remembered this one again, hadnt heard it in a while, looked up the lyrics and found this interesting link :).

Sold on Song, Paul McCartney on BBC2 Radio. Very nice radio program, available on the BBC radio site ! Nice interview and great live stuff from the famous Abbey Road studio.
Due to some ridiculous legal issues this wonderful program to back up DVDs has been pulled off the web :(. Luckily you can still get it here: http://www.dvdhelp.us/dvddecrypter/dvddecrypter.html. Hollywood really doesnt get it, that these kinda issues dont promote more DVD sales. I buy more than enough DVDs and now I am not even allowed to back em up ? Oh well…
Just a few picks of the ones, that I’ll soon check out, amazing how fast you can listen to recent shows these days. I remember the days where it would take weeks before a crappy cassette came in the mail…
